These wireless earbuds have one special feature that works great — for some things

With my extra time in quarantine, I, like many others, have strived to get into a regular fitness and nutrition routine. What better time than now, right?

Wrong. With all my plans so up in the air right now, I find it hard to get up off the couch or schedule almost anything into my nonexistent “routine.” Because of this lack of structure, I’ve begun looking for motivators to make working out simpler and more fun. 

To me, the most important part of working out (and, dare I say, my life) is music. So, I bought a pair of wireless earbuds. The Edifier TWS NB Noise-Cancelling Earbuds seemed nice, so I tried them out. With their Active Noise Cancellation technology (ANC), I figured these earbuds would help me block out the haters (and other distractions too). The feature certainly works and is quite amazing actually, but I found it difficult to work out with them in.

Because of their bulky size (13mm diaphragm), these earbuds stick out nearly an inch from my head. As a result, they’re quite heavy. They hardly stood a chance against a bumpy bike ride and some wind resistance. 

Yes, I was bummed I hadn’t found the pair of wireless workout earbuds I wanted, but I knew I wanted to find a purpose for the cool ANC feature. After some more messing around, I discovered another, even cooler feature of these earbuds: ambient sound mode. 

If you’re in ANC mode and suddenly need to engage in conversation, just two clicks of the button on either earbud will bring you to ambient sound mode. In this setting, outside noise suddenly returns. Even through your tunes, the earbuds will amplify outside noise to accommodate any sudden communication needs. 

Both these features are especially helpful when I’m focused. When I need to hunker down and work on my computer for a few hours, they’re great assets. 

Just two clicks of a button and I block out the noisy AC and bustling city sounds outside my apartment. Another double click and I’m back with ambient sound mode. They’re great focus tools.

However, I would suggest limiting your work time with these earbuds to an hour or two. Because of how bulky these earbuds are, they’re pretty uncomfortable. I find myself adjusting them constantly and my ears feel itchy and raw when I take them out. Maybe my ear canals are small, but these earbuds just don’t seem to offer the most luxurious listening experience.

Although these Edifier Earbuds didn’t feel like joining me on my fitness journey, they’ve proven to be excellent business buddies. I love the way they sound and am still impressed by their ability to completely block out noise. I used them through an intense thunderstorm and, with ANC activated, I couldn’t hear a thing from the outside world. 

They have an excellent battery life (33-hour playtime), and their sleek case charges with any USB-C cable. If not for their bulk, I’d argue that $120 is a reasonable price for the neat features that are included. For me, these earbuds didn’t do the trick, but for business-minded individuals with bigger ear canals and a decent tolerance for discomfort, they may just be the perfect fit.

  1. Thanks for discussing your ideas. I’d also like to convey that video games have been actually evolving. Better technology and enhancements have made it easier to create reasonable and enjoyable games. These kinds of entertainment games were not that sensible when the concept was first being experimented with. Just like other kinds of electronics, video games also have had to develop as a result of many years. This itself is testimony for the fast continuing development of video games.

  2. Are you gonna to debate more concerning this topic? I’m sure you could be unwilling to share some of your more controversial opinions, but I would certainly enjoy reading them!

  3. You can definitely see your skills within the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. All the time follow your heart.
